Atlantis announced on Wednesday that it will begin its phased reopening on July 7.
“Our reopening will be in phases,” Audrey Oswell, resort president and managing director, said in a letter to employees.
“Phase one begins July 7, 2020 when we welcome our first guests back to The Royal.
“In phase one Royal Bath, Mayan Temple, Power Tower, Zero Entry and Splashers will open.
“All beaches will open and Dolphin Cay will open. The main casino, spa and Marina Village will open. Some but not all of our restaurants and lounges will open.”
The statement said the launch of phase two will depend on business volume.
The resort laid off thousands of employees in March after Prime Minister Dr. Hubert Minnis announced the closure of the country’s borders in March.
In her letter, Oswell indicated that only some of the employees will be recalled during the initial phase.
She said employees that are called back for the phase one reopening will remain furloughed.
“We know that there will continue to be hardship for many of you. Be assured that we are making every effort to bring tourism back to previous levels so we may get you back to work,” she continued.
“Our Atlantis spirit is one of strength and resilience. Despite the setbacks, I am confident that our business will rebound and we will emerge stronger than ever.”
The government announced the resumption of international commercial flights on July 1.
